March came in like a lion.
Will it go out like a lamb?
the ESL Night at both schools this year. I always love
to meet with all of you and have you see some of the things
we do in school.
The 1st-5th grade students worked very
hard on their Photo Stories and were proud to share them
with you. I will be happy to send your child's photo
story to you so you can see
their hard work if you were not able to come. Then all you have to do is download Photo Story from Microsoft. It is free and you can see the presentation.
